    Is there a way to put spotlight on Panther, obviously it will not be "spotlight" but a metadata searcher, something that might even look like spotlight in the top right corner, i have hear of these searchers, surely it wouldnt be hard to make it LOOK like spotlight, but anywho, does anyone know of a searcher like spotlight that will work on panther

    Try a little application called Butler. I doesn't search all metadata like Spotlight, but it will find filenames pretty quick. It not exactly what you're asking for but its in the ballpark.

    Love the Texas quote BTW

    Also QuickSilver does some similar things -- you have to use an older beta, though, since the latest requires Tiger.
